We often say that our goal is to affect the world from Cooper City.

Boxes of Hope is a tangible way for us to stretch out a hand to those that are affected either through illness, quarantine, or just the uncertainty of this time. The world all around us may change, but God’s love remains the same, and we want to share some hope in difficult times.

Get Hope

If you have been impacted by the current COVID-19 quarantines and shut downs, we would like to help.

We have been so thankful to have been able to bless so many of our South Florida neighbors with a Box of Hope over the past few weeks.  We have currently been overwhelmed with responses and are working hard to keep up.  At the present moment, we are not accepting new requests.  We want to be certain we can provide for all existing requests in a timely fashion.  We anticipate opening the request form back up soon.  Please continue to check back with us.

Give Hope

If you would like to support the South Florida community by supporting Boxes of Hope, you can do so in two ways.

Option 1

You can donate to support this effort online. Please select “Boxes of Hope” in the Giving Type and your contribution will go towards needed supplies.

Option 2: Donate Needed Goods

When you shop for your household needs, pick up something extra for others (please consult the needed supplies list drop down menus to the right).  We will have donation bins available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM at The Pentecostals of Cooper City located at 5201 S. Flamingo Rd., Cooper City, FL 33330.

We are doing everything we can to guard and protect our community.  To this end, the donation bins will be unmanned.  Please follow the signage to the drop off bins.  There, we ask that you would drop your donation in the appropriately labeled bin.  We ask that there only be one family at the drop off bins at a time.  Please stay in your car until the person in front of you pulls out.   

We will be following all CDC recommendations when collecting and delivering goods.  We will be isolating all donated goods for three days to ensure that the items are safe to distribute.  According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the virus can live on certain surfaces up to 72 hours. 

We will be prioritizing donations to those infected with COVID-19, those that are vulnerable due to health and age and the unemployed.
